Impress your guests with an effortless summer salad made with kale, crunchy celery, olives and a refreshing lime tahini dressing.
Nothing says summer like a refreshing salad!
I definitely crave more salads when the weather gets warm. Its something you can enjoy al fresco and won’t leave you feeling weighed down in the summer heat.
Build-you-own salad places are something I miss dearly about living in NYC. Always, without fail, I ask for kale as my base. It is the most nutrient-dense of the available greens and I am always confident that I can mask its bitterness with a good dressing and seasonal toppings.
This salad has an array of textures and a refreshing dressing to bring it all together.
Since this is on the lighter side with no main protein, I recommend serving as a summer side or bringing to your next warm weather gathering to complement a heartier spread.
This is not the last kale salad you will be seeing on the blog this summer!
